Mourning the Death of a Monitor

It seems silly to be attached to equipment, but I was very fond of my external monitor, which was attached to a G4 tower, then a Tibook, and then a Macbook Air. It lived to be the ripe old age of over 13 years and died right before my eyes as I hit “publish” on the DC meetup post of this evening.


Christmas Schedule

Naked Capitalism will be going to a holiday schedule starting tomorrow evening. We’ll have three posts a day (Links plus two additional posts) through and including New Year’s Day.

We hope that those of you who are traveling arrive safely, and wish you a good holiday break!


We Are Eight Years Old

birthday cake with candles eight years oldEvery year, I use the birthday post to thank the people who have contributed to the success of this site over time. Now that we are eight years old, that list is so long that any effort to do it justice will inevitably neglect some key people. So I hope no one takes offense at an oversight.

I started writing this blog because it seemed like a good idea at the time. More specifically, it seemed at that time that there were things that needed to be said. In the fall and winter of 2006, if you read between the lines of the Financial Times and Bloomberg, it was not hard to see that credit risk was grossly underpriced across all debt instruments, or to put it another way, that we were in the midst of a huge credit bubble. And you’d never be able to discern that by reading the Wall Street Journal or New York Times. It was clear this wall of liquidity, as it was described at the time, was going to end badly, but when and how was an open question.
